Pather Panchali: A Poem inspired by the film

Pather Panchali

Aunt’s Death
On the way home
I saw your, Snow White hair …
Daylight taking away your shine
Your faint smile disappearing in Nothingness;
A serious fight of deprivation – – – –
Deprived me – of you …
Durga in Appu’s memory
Running through the dancing fields
Chasing the moving train
We rushed to the tall tree in Rain
— Then I saw your fragile body,
Dark face, full of Pain
Touch of the necklace thrown
Haunts me in Vain – – –
Oh my dear fallen leaves – – –
of the summer of my life
Down the Memory Lane.
